BlackBerry Storm 9500 – First Impressions

February 25, 2009

As a T-Mobile BlackBerry user I was gutted to learn that the new touch screen BlackBerry Storm 9500 was only to be released via Vodafone. It was bad enough that the iPhone was O2 only and I was unhappy that RIM were playing at being Apple!

A lot of my T-Mobile clients were asking questions too – was I going to have to start moving them to Voda? Before Xmas 2008 the phones were red hot.  A fantastic TV ad campaign for the Storm was really driving interest in BlackBerry so that was great. It was just unfortunate for those tied in to contracts with other networks.

Once we got hold some stock I started to think otherwise though. For the first time ever I was not impressed with a new BlackBerry. The touch screen was temperamental and the software (as on many touch screen devices) not easy to master.

I know they will improve the software and screen usability but I for one, was glad I had not rushed out and purchased the Storm when it was first released.
